comment support for utf-8 encoding with lpr
Thanks. I already have the latest version of HPLIP on my system. I tried to find where one can specify this in http://localhost:631 but I could not find anything about driver selection.

comment How to install some packages from “unstable” Debian on a computer running “stable” Debian?
The apt.conf files seems to no longer exist in Debian testing (wiki.debian.org/AptConf), its role apparently having been assumed by /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/70debconf. If this is correct, perhaps the answer should be amended to indicate this release-dependence?

Thanks very much for your reply. I'm aware of paps and wanted to know if there was a possibility of native support within CUPS so that external dependencies needn't be invoked.

comment support for utf-8 encoding with lpr
@Netch: Thanks for pointing out the a2ps filter. I was not aware of it. The printer in question is an HP4650 scanning laser printer. How can one determine the encoding used by CUPS? The characters actually printed, which bear no discernible relation to the input, included a Greek capital gamma, a capital C with a cedilla, an o with a circumflex, and a Latin capital W and T. Beyond this the failure to respect newline characters results in truncation of output at the paper margin.

comment openbox window positioning
Thanks, the placement options are what I needed for both questions. As far as conky goes, I want maximized applications to be able to hide it (so I can take advantage of the entire screen when desired), but when new windows are opened, I would prefer that they don't obscure the conky window by default. It seems that the center option in the placement settings of the openbox rc.xml file is the key here. So far as I can currently tell, it only accepts yes/no values, but if one could set it more quantitatively (e.g., 10% in from top left corner), that would be most useful.

comment conky: proper column alignment
Is a certain package needed for ${goto x} functionality? On my system, all text appearing after a goto statement (regardless of the value used for the positional offset x) fails to display.

comment enabling thinkpad fn keys in openbox
Thanks, I'll try assigning bindings to all the keys. I find it interesting that some of the key bindings are firmware-dependent while others are software-dependent.

comment .Xresources font names
That's very helpful. Thanks for the examples as well as for pointing me to the XLFD for the full specifications. I wasn't aware of xfontsel, but find it to be a rather helpful tool for viewing the effect of varying parameters. Your answer also explains why changing the number in the font designation in my question wasn't changing the font size: the number was in the adstyl column rather than the pxlsz column.

comment enabling thinkpad fn keys in openbox
@RaphaelAhrens: Yes, the keys do elicit a response in xev. What's odd is that there are no keybindings for any of the <kbd>Fn</kbd> keys in my rc.xml file (openbox config file), so what is handling the display brightness keys (and not the other special keys) is unclear to me.
